Ha is an example of the universal refugee experience because she goes through things that many other refugees go through, such as the feeling of being “inside out” and not belonging anywhere. Ha has to learn a new language and a whole new way of life, she has to give up many of her old traditions and ways of life like many refugees do. A universal refugee experience is something that is experienced by not all, but most refugees. Ha started out stubborn and forceful before they fled their home, "I decided to wake before dawn and tap my big toe on the tile floor first," (Lai 2). Ha is angry that only men 's feet bring good luck and she will not let that be the case for she wants to bring luck to her family. She loves her mother very much but she would rather hide her brother 's sandals then say that she loves them too, she does but she wouldn 't admit it. Ha from the book Inside Out & Back Again experiences many of the same things as other refugees do, this is known as a universal refugee experience. Many refugees are turned inside out as they go through the process of moving from their home country to a new country and as they try to find a sense of normal life again.
The Syrian Civil War has been prolonged further than ever anticipated. With casualties reaching the hundreds of thousands, this war has left permanent impacts on families across all of Syria. The civil war in Syria was sparked from the Arab Spring which consisted of countries in North Africa and Middle East. It then escalated to widespread violence emitting from the Syrian government, and resulting in what is now the Syrian Civil War. With all of this starting from a peaceful protest and now resulting in a violent and messy war, is it really worth it at this point? Without a doubt, Syria has some huge issues facing their society currently as well as in the future. These issues have continued to be fueled by sectarian conflicts among religions, a divided opposition within the rebel groups, and the foreign interference from countries involved for their own personal interests.
Canada has been letting in refugees from all over the world, especially the refugees from Syria. Tons of these refugees are easily accepted and are not looked at properly. A refugee is someone who have fled their country due to prosecution, war or violence . Refugees in countries that are at war might not have any documents due to the fact that they probably escaped and didn’t have any time to gather their documents. Tons of these people have lost everything that were close to them including family and friends, homes etc. Although these horrid things have happened to them, the people of Canada have to be cared for first. There are many security risks of accepting refugees into Canada, because some of these refugees might be part of a terrorist organization with a mission to cause harm to Canadians. A woman named Rehab Dughmosh ( Syrian ) has been arrested for attacking people at a Canadian Tire store. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police ( RCMP ) have laid terror-related charges against her, including an attempted murder in benefit or association with a terrorist group. The Canadian government needs to look more closely at these refugees and need to realize that these refugees aren’t as important as the well being of Canada and its
Since the beginning of the Syrian war in 2011, many have fled the country and settled in the neighboring states, including Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, and Egypt. Currently, there are 4 million Syrian refugees registered in the region. By mid-2015, the World Bank’s estimated cost of the Syrian war for the Middle Eastern countries is $35 billion. This load is too heavy to endure, and this is why refugees have been aiming for European countries for a couple of years now.
Canada was the first country to adopt multiculturalism and has since cultivated a society that focuses on the benefits of diversity and encourages racial and ethnic harmony. In fact, in an article by Keung in The Star, Canada ranked fourth most welcoming country for immigrants in the world. This was seen as the reason behind higher rates of naturalization as individual rights are being championed and immigrants are guaranteed equality. Now, with Justin Trudeau from the Liberal Party as Prime Minister, the world can expect reforms in Canada’s Immigration System that would be more sympathetic to refugees and immigrants. Regulating the inflow of foreign nationals would be the Canadian Immigration and Refugee Law and the Immigration and Refugee
As most of you already know, I have moved to Turkey temporarily to be with my love, Emrem. But before I moved here, I was searching for a grassroots effort to help Syrian refugees and came up empty.
Canada is among the world 's most generous nations for immigrants and has one of the highest per capita admission rates. It has, on average, offered residency to about 200,000 immigrants and refugees a year over the past decade, earning a global reputation for an "open arms" attitude.
One of the reasons a mass exodus has occurred in recent years is the Syrian Civil War. In 2011, the Middle East was subjected to mass uprising and rebellion against the government(1). Battles were started by rebels in order to demonstrate the need for democratic reform. These battles between the rebels and the government soon turned
America has been the land of immigration since the 1400s. Many people come here for better opportunities, as well as freedom. However, over the years, it has been more difficult for immigrants to come to America due to the government passing laws to tighten the country’s walls and the terrorist attack in Paris last month makes it worst for immigrant to come in. it is very understandable that the government is reluctant to let in some Syrian Refugees into his country. Nevertheless, America should take the refugees into their country because they are in danger, they are in need of a better opportunities, and they need guidance from higher officials.
Syria’s population is 90% Muslim and 10% Christian. The majority of Canadian Muslims live in the province of Ontario. Ottawa has many Muslim and Syrian people in it, along with a plethora of different nationalities such as Chinese, Indian, Lebanese, African and many more. Multiple different types of religion are also practiced in Ottawa such as Hindu, Buddhism and Sikh. Ottawa has approximately 180 Syrian refugees already settled and plan to welcome as many as two thousand more. There are several Mosques so the Syrian family will have plenty of areas to choose from to practice their religion. They will find comfort in being surrounded by the familiarity of other Syrians and Muslims.
Meanwhile, Canada is globally known as a safe haven for those who seek refuge. We also know that Canada has welcomed hundreds of Syrian refugees from October of 2016 until today. But how many of those refugees actually have the right paperwork to enter Canada? Toure’s situation is not much different from the Syrian refugees, both parties decided to fleet their countries for their safety.
The Syrian Refugee Crisis has been one of the most controversial issues in our world today, especially in the Western World. Numerous sides have sprung up, with most countries in Eastern Europe refusing Syrian refugees on the basis of security policies, while some countries in Western Europe such as Germany expressed support for refugees seeking refuge from the terror and chaos in Syria. To many, the refugee crisis has no clear end for the war in Syria itself its getting more complicated.
“Immigration is not just compatible with but is a necessary component to economical growth”. Immigration happens all over the world, but why are people so desperate to leave their home countries? What do they expect from the countries that they are going to? Likewise, what do they have to contribute to these countries? In Canada, approximately twenty percent of the 2011 population is foreign-born. That is one in every five citizens. With such a large number of citizens being foreign-born and so many more trying to come in, Canada must ensure that the immigration policy is adequate to ensure that no individual that is a possible danger is being let into Canada. Stephen Harper has stated that the government has been “systematically re-orienting immigration over the last several years to make it more focused on economic needs and long term labor market needs”.
Foreign policy has been a divisive topic in the United States, especially since the devastating terrorist attack in Paris. The fallout of this tragedy has been used to support the denial of Syrian refugee immigration into this country. Despite the horrifying events that have happened in France, I disagree with this stance. Syrian refugees should be allowed to seek shelter in the United States. Their presence would be a great boon to this country, despite popular notions to the contrary.
As the Syrian Civil War is approaching it’s fifth year, we look back at all the devastation it has caused, both in Syria, and in neighboring countries, and what we Canadians can do to help those effected. According to Al-Jazeera, as of March 2015, 10.9 million Syrians have been displaced, 3.8 million of them are refugees, most of them going to neighboring countries like Lebanon and Jordan. So what should Canada as a whole do in regards to the Syrian Refugee Crisis? Also, what should each and every Canadian citizen do? Read on.
